ABB invests in electric engines plant near Lodz


The Swiss- Swedish company ABB, the power and automation technology group, will build a new factory in Poland to make standard low-voltage motors, creating about 150 new jobs.

ABB will invest $24 million to build the new 10,000 square-meter factory in Aleksandrow Lodzki, part of the Special Economic Zone near Lodz, in central Poland.  It is scheduled to begin production in the first half of 2009.
The factory is designed for efficient production and short delivery times, and will apply. It is expected to produce about 40,000 motors per year.

Demand for high efficiency motors has risen amid strong global economic growth and concern about rising energy costs and climate change. They achieve considerable savings over their lifetime as about 99 percent of a typical motor’s total cost is spent on energy.

ABB has specialized low-voltage motor factories in Finland, Italy, Spain, Sweden, China and India. ABB also provides a worldwide service network and product support.

ABB  is a leader in power and automation technologies. The ABB Group of companies operates in around 100 countries and employs more than 110,000 people.
